|The blue Civic with my race wheels and tires|
You may wonder why I was not driving the race car... funny story. I had ordered the wrong head gasket and could not change it on Saturday as planned. My friend Pat Boyer had the gasket I needed and very graciously did a straight trade for the one I had bought. When Pat and his dad saw my old head gasket, which I had brought along to make sure I was picking up the right part, they mentioned that I should not install the new gasket until I checked the head for straightness. They showed me where the gasket had failed. JP took the head to his guy, who confirmed that it was straighter than a brand new head. JP will reinstall the head this week and we will hope for the best. I really really hope we can drive the car Monday!
In other news, I ran 21 km last Thursday, just to see if I could do it. I can, but not that quickly. I was considering entering a 1/2 marathon (21 km) this fall, but the race coincided with the War Bonnet Enduro at Mosport. I chose Mosport.
Canada has not yet won any medals 4.5 days into the olympics. Sad.
Cool cars spotted this week:

RHD Toyota Supra TT
